Gothenburg-based producer Kasbo has built a staggering over the past few years thanks to his towering compositions that meld cinematic power with ambient beauty. On his new single, 'Bleed It Out,' Kasbo finds a vocalist capable of capturing the emotionality of his music with thrilling results.

Nea, who helped write Zara Larsson's hit 'Lush Life,' possesses an evocative voice full of raw talent and character. 'Bleed It Out' gently builds before letting forth a beat that is by turns both bubbly and hazy.

According to Kasbo, the track was inspired by his adventures around the world.

"This song, like one of my other released tunes 'World Away,' is mainly inspired by my backpacking trip through China and Vietnam," explains Kasbo. "Traveling around this place that has a complete different culture and way of life gave me a very uneasy feeling but was also very intriguing, and going there with your friends it was just a whole mess of emotions. Familiarity, clashing with fear in a complete foreign environment.

"There are so many new impressions during such a short time, things going on everywhere," he continues. "A lot of the places we visited were extremely chaotic while at the same time very alluring. It was something that at first stemmed some kind of anxiety within me but something I grew to love." It "was kind of a beautiful chaos," he says.
